Who had the top 5 cases in the Akron area? Local firms compete. Malarcik, Pierce, Munyer & Will save defendant from death penalty
In January the Akron Bar Association and the Akron Legal News joined hands in a first-ever contest to identify the top five most significant cases handled by local legal professionals over the last 18 months.
Firms and in-house legal departments were asked to submit their top three cases or transactions that were resolved or took place between June 2015 and Dec. 31, 2016.
The cases and/or transactions were to be selected based on precedent, a major verdict, dollar amount or the impact on the community.
